ABOUT THE EVENT
The 60’s and 70’s provided an era of the most outstanding vehicle competition in the world.
The Aussie Muscle Car Run is the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual leisure car cruise to help raise funds for all Australians living with blood cancers.
The run is open to muscle cars of the golden era of Bathurst, built between 1963 and 1977. Replicas are welcome and the organisers also consider special interest vehicles.
The Aussie Muscle Car Run provides registrants with the opportunity to enjoy time travelling with fellow muscle car lovers in iconic cars through iconic Australian scenery.
The event started in 2012 and has since raised more than $2.24 million for the Leukaemia Foundation.

The Aussie Muscle Car Run is not a competition event! It’s about taking a leisurely cruise while showing off your car at events and communities and helping to spotlight the work of the Foundation and its great fundraising initiatives.
However, entrants do have the opportunity to participate in various controlled motorsport events throughout the Run … and it’s all in the name of FUN!
In return for an entrance fee and fundraising, the run will include daily breakfasts and dinners, accommodation, overnight security for the cars, official entrant’s shirt, car livery (stickers), back up mechanical support/facilities and entry into supervised motor sport events. The entrance fee and sponsorship will support the Leukaemia Foundation’s vital work.
History of AMCR
The Aussie Muscle Car Run really all started with event chairman Kevin May, who is still a big part of the Run today.
Kevin – a true blue Ford man and long-time member and former president of the South Australian GT Club had lost a sister to leukaemia so the cause was close to his heart. After running a successful GT National event in 2008, where the Leukaemia Foundation was the major beneficiary – Kev recognised the potential to run an annual event.
He teamed up with the Leukaemia Foundation and after much planning and hard work, The Aussie Muscle Car Run was born.
THE leukaemia foundation
The Leukaemia Foundation’s ambition is help more Australians beat blood cancer by providing emotional and practical support as well as funding life-saving research into better treatments and cures.
